Rowena Duncan is a thoroughly modern girl with big plans for her summer—until she catches her boyfriend making out with another girl. Heartbroken, she applies to an out-of-town job posting and finds herself somewhere she never expected: the Renaissance Faire.

As a face-painter doubling as a serving wench, Ro is thrown headfirst into a vibrant community of artists and performers. She feels like a fish out of water until Will, a quick-witted whip cracker, takes her under his wing. Then there’s Christian, a blue-eyed stunt jouster who makes Ro weak in the knees. Soon, it’s not just her gown that’s tripping her up.

Trading in the internet and electricity for stars and campfires was supposed to make life simpler, but Ro is finding that love is the ultimate complication. Can she let the past make way for her future?


This was a cute story and it had everything that I love about books. Who doesn’t love Renaissance Faire? I know that I do, I even went to Faire couple times when it came to my area, and I love them. It’s one of the reasons that I loved this book, because most of it took place at Renaissance Faire and since I been to one couple times, I could picture almost everything that was happening there. It’s what made My Faire Lady different from the other books that took place in that time, it wasn’t time travel, it was current period. There was always something happening there, and it makes the reader realize how much work the employees have to do every day. I noticed how much working there, changed Rowena, it’s like she became a completely different person after. Of course once I reached the end, I was wondering if she come back next summer, if Will and Rowena make the relationship work. My Faire Lady is a novel that will have you thinking about characters after it comes to end.

I loved Suze & Will, loved how the two of them accepted her, and took her under their wind from start. The three of them had an instant bond, especially Rowena & Suze. Of course you can’t help but love Suze, she was outgoing and made sure everyone having a good time. She’s a lot like my best friend, Mariah. Rowena & Suze are just like the two of us, like them, we had an instant connection. When the two of them fought, it actually made me sad and I hoped that they would make up. Once they did, I was smiling. Now Will is another story, I had feeling that she might like him from start, just way that she checked him out few times, I am pretty sure that just friends don’t do that. I think that she was concentrating so much on Christian, of wanting him to kiss her, that she pushed it on back of her mind. I was wondering when she would realize it. Even I realized it how he feels about her before she did.

Now Christian, I had a feeling that there was something off about him, expect I can’t really explain what it was. He seemed decent enough at first and I could see why she liked him, who wouldn’t? But moment he started taking calls and ditching her alone, I had a feeling that something was up. I felt bad for her, when she found that he was cheater just like her ex been, it seemed like she couldn’t escape from her past. In way I am glad that she found out when she did, before things gone too far. Her art, the descriptions of how she drew her art, it took my breath away. I might not be an artist but I love art. I pictured every single thing, and like Suze and Will I hope she would consider majoring in art. Her parents surprised me, they took her confession better that I thought they would, I was sure that they would be completely against it, considering how she mentioned how strict they were. I guess sometimes people surprise you.

My Faire Lady is a novel filled with humor, romance, adventure, acceptance, letting go. Plus it has quite bit history in a mix. A debut author that I will looking forward to the next adventure.
